Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

343 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

So much history in this city. Seeing Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, and everything in the area is a must.

I was surprised by how moving it was to be in the same room as the founding fathers of our country. The State Park staff were SO knowledgeable and shared details about our history and the lives of the people at the time. I loved this visit and can't wait to bring my kids.

You don’t really think of wandering around city streets while visiting a national park, but in Philly you’ll definitely want to! Don’t just go to see the liberty bell. We did see it, early, and there was barely anyone in line! Because of covid, they are limiting people so make sure you’re ready to stand in the cold and go through airport level security multiple times! Independence Hall had a 2 hour wait at 9:30 AM (we did visit on a Sunday) so we had to skip it, it was just way too cold for us. Also, the graveyard where Benjamin Franklin is buried is closed on Sunday’s! So make sure you check the hours for each of the spots at the park before your visit. Betsy Ross’ house is a $5 fee (the rest of the park is free, except for parking.) The coolest thing we saw by far was Elfreth’s Alley. All of the houses were decorated for fall and it was so cool to walk around and talk with the owners. You can get some great shots of the historic homes. Definitely check it out!

The two main attractions here are of course, the Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell. Other the two main ones, the Visitor Center and the open space is worth taking a break. The Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell are free of charge, however, due to COVID-19, plan to stay in lines for minimum of 30 minutes and another minute of the tour at Independence Hall. At the Liberty Bell, expect to be in line for not less than 45-an hour because the Park Service will only allow 10 people inside the hall at one time. Especially if you are first time in Philly, these two place are a must to see. Go early if you could. The Visitor Center is the best place for bathroom.

Loved seeing this place. It was very interesting. Note that recently since they've reopened, they are only doing tours in small groups. The line can be quite long so we went first thing and the morning and were able to be in the first group through.
